Entertainment icon Barbra Streisand looked back on some of her careeer choices: "I don't get a lot of offers to either direct or act. I'm still a kind of threatening object. I was offered They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, but you had to dance through the whole movie -- I got tired just reading the script. I was offered Klute, but I was seeing someone at the time and didn't want to work. I was offered Julia, but I was editing A Star Is Born. As I say to Jane Fonda, 'I'm responsible for your career.' Because I turned down those movies and she got them and she was wonderful in them. Now people want me for a specific role."
